The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Any MIS Degrees here at WBB?

    I was just curious to know if anyone had a MIS (management information systems) degree and what type of job they currently held (exactly what do you do?). I'm finishing up my local community college and next year I'll be transfering to Iowa State University. I'm not 100% sure this is going to be my major, but its something that defnitely interests me. Anyone?

    Ya I have a MIS degree. Decent degree, but I would suggest being proficient in at least one programming language and also get a few certs and being a certfied DBA is good to have also.

    Currently, I own my own INternet Marketing company with a couple of guys, but I worked about 10 years in ecommerce.

    I was doing MIS but switched over to business with econ and sales. I think that MIS is good but go one way or the other. Either go the computer science route, or go the business route.

    Bill, what I have been reading about MIS, it says that it doesnt involve programming? I HATE programming. I was hoping it wouldnt involve much of it.

    And Shark, thanks for clarifying that. I like business end of things alot, but wanted some computer stuff in there too. One or the other huh? Coincidentally my other option I've considered was getting a economics major and a minor in marketing. What do you do for a living?

    Ya, you don't have to program in the major, but out in the real world it is very helpful to be able to know what is going on. If you are specing things out, talking the talk, nothing drives me more insane then having a sales/acct manager tell my IT guys what the thing should do.
